Five Signs that a new relationship will be successful!

Every relationship comes with a risk, and nobody wants to get heartbroken in the end. If you’re in a new relationship, check out these 5 signs that tell you’re going strong with your partner.

You have fun together
A lot of couples get bored with each other after knowing everything about them. But strong couples try to keep it dynamic. They try new things together, play games, have fun, and travel. If you and your special someone enjoy each other’s company, then you’re going to have it even better in the future! Make everyday a chance to discover something new about your partner. Don’t stop learning about them. Even when you think you’ve already learned everything there is to know about your partner, you’ll never fully know unless you try something new! Couples who have fun with each other and have a similar sense of humor tend to stay longer in the relationship. Laughter is a great medicine and it works on relationships too!

You’re honest about intimate matters
If both of you are very honest about your previous relationships, it means there’s trust. Some couples prefer not to talk about the past, and it could mean a lot of things. Being comfortable talking about past issues means you’re over and done with it, and you only want to keep them as memories. If you’re concerned about your previous sexual activities, don’t be shy to suggest getting tested. Find out more here about why this is a good move for couples who are looking into getting hitched in the future.

You don’t keep grudges
Resentment destroys relationships. If you feel bad about something, step up and be honest about it with your partner. Tell him or her that you’re upset about this and that. Be specific about it, specially if you’re talking to your boyfriend. If you’re in a relationship where both of you are honest about everything you feel and are vocal about the things that disturb you, then that’s a good sign. It means you value each other’s feelings and don’t want to hurt the person you love by keeping grudges. Be honest in your relationships and you’ll learn to understand each other. Don’t be angry for too long because it saps you of enthusiasm for the relationship that you might end up losing it.

You respect each other
Successful couples have mutual respect for each other. They work hard to meet each other’s needs and love to see their significant other happy. They don’t act like they own each other and are sensitive to the feelings of their partner. They listen intently and engage sincerely every time they talk, and genuinely care about how they feel.

Your family and friends approve of you both
It’s always a challenge to get both of your family and friend’s approval. While most of them may appear supportive, you’ll never really know until you hear something from them! Some couples may rebel against the thought, but in reality, your circle’s stamp of approval does matter a lot. High levels of support from your inner circle is key to a happy relationship. While you’re deep in love with your partner, the people around you have a more objective view of your significant other and their opinions matter.

How to: DIY personalized greeting card..

Hi all,

Let me tell you this guys. I LOVE getting personalized cards rather than an expensive card from Hallmark!. To know that someone actually put in some thought and effort into making a card for me, is a really special feeling. So I try my best to give personalized cards on my family and friends’ bdays.

My mom’s bday is coming up and this time, I thought I will do a post on how I created one for her. First of all, in order to create a card, I don’t usually have the whole idea in my mind. I just have a basic idea and then let it shape itself as I go on with it. You can simply get whatever decorative items you can and put it together to look pretty. I usually save certain things for future simply because I think it would come in handy some day. As you go through the post, you will know how much I am into up-cycling.

Note: This post is loaded with pix because I wanted it to be completely detailed!

Here are things I thought I would need (I didn’t use certain things in the picture. I just had them handy. That’s all):

Image

Image

Image

 

The basic idea I have is to cover that card board piece with the A4 sized paper so it becomes a thick card. That card board piece is something I got from inside a new pillow case set. Ironically, that pillow cover set was gifted to me by my mom!. 

Image

 

I have placed the card board piece right in the middle of the paper. Then I taped it into place as below :

Image

In the above pic, I am cutting off the 4 corners (as if I am gift wrapping the card board piece). While doing so, an idea hit me and I decided to save those triangle like pieces. You will see how I used it later 🙂

Image

Image

Now except for that tiny square in the middle, it’s completely covered. I took the second A4 sheet and cut out a piece (the size of the card not the size of the small square) and stuck it to this side.

Image

Now both sides are covered.

Image

 

Remember those triangle paper pieces I saved? . I decided to color them. I used 5 of the oil pastel sticks from the set I have, in total for this card. Violet, hyacinth violet, yellow green, pink  and red are the colors I used.

Image

I then stuck the 4 triangles together and then stuck it to the card like this :

Image

 

As you see, I hadn’t planned this before. It just hit me and I thought it would look good. Next, I lifted the petal-like parts of the triangles so that it doesn’t lay flat against the card.

Image

Here is a cute thing I saved from an earring I got from H & M.

Image

 

I am guessing it will look good in the middle of the triangle structure.

Image

 

Next I tied the ribbon (which was wrapped around a small goodie bag I got some time back from Dove) on the top of the card.

Image

We will perfect that ribbon in a second!. I then wrote a message on the ribbon.

Image

Close up!

Image

I then got a pack of confetti stars. It came along with a gift bag which I once got from some gift shop.

Image

Then I stuck it to the top. I found a single silver star among the bunch of purple stars!. So I put that in the very middle! I wrote Happy bday. Then I arranged some stars on the bottom part of the card just to see how it looks. Two of the arrangements are shown below. However, those both aren’t the way I finally stuck it.

Image

Image

Shaded those words:

Image

 

Here is how I finally did the stars and wrote a message for her.

Image

 

So the front side of the card is done. I kept the theme purple simply because the stars were purple. I brought in the green and pink simply to bring more color rather than the whole thing being monochromatic. Now lets do the other side!

Here I thought of incorporating a teddy which came off my autograph book cover. It’s dress is really soft you know!

Image

 

I stuck it to the card

Image

Another idea hit me and I decided to keep that side of the card in a red theme. So I got this gift wrap which I once received from a friend. I drew a heart on it so I can easily cut it out.

Image

 

Image

Below, I stuck it and drew a line to make it look like the teddy had a heart balloon. 

Image

 

Image

Now here is a bit of glittery stones I saved from a dress of mine. Where can I incorporate that into the card??…

Image

 

Hmm…. Lets make the heart a bit sparkly!

Image

 

A message on the ribbon

Image

Personalized message on the card:

Image

In the end, childish looking hearts on the top!

Image

Thus it’s complete. It’s not super creative, however, it’s thoughtful. When making a card, you don’t have to make everything perfect. That is the beauty of it. It’s unique that way.. Let me know below whether you guys liked it and which side you liked more. Do you like DIYs?. Comment below!
